Summer Skin: What you need to know!
Summer signifies the start of more outdoor fun and enjoying the things you love. However, the sun and high temperatures come at a price, and it is our skin that pays the ultimate price.
How Can Summer Affect Your Skin?
Dry heat and exposure to the elements can make skin sensitive, dehydrated, dull and lifeless. The sebaceous glands can become more active due to the high temperatures and humidity. This can make oily skin even more oily, and dry skin can become rough and patchy. Pores open due to the heat, which can then get clogged with dirt and oil, trapping bacteria and leading to pimples, blemishes and acne. Of course, the risk of sunburn is high at this time of year, and that is inextricably linked to ageing and skin cancer.
How Can You Protect Your Skin During Summer?
- First and foremost, always apply a good quality sunscreen over your skincare products. It should protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Avoid the hottest times of the day, wear a wide-brimmed hat and cover up with loose, cool clothing as much as you can.
- Up your antioxidants! This can be in the form of your skincare and in the form of your nutrition. Why antioxidants, you ask? Well, they protect your skin from environmental damage by scavenging harmful free radicals. Antioxidants boost collagen production, hydrate and prevent skin damage. Add them to your diet too by eating citrus fruits, green, leafy vegetables, nuts, whole grains and green tea. Antioxidants are vital to optimal skin health, not to mention younger-looking skin!
- Say goodbye to those heavy, cold creams during Summer. Make no mistake, your skin still needs moisture at this time of year, but it does call for lighter, non-greasy products. Continue to ensure your skin is hydrated with good quality skincare and invest time to use a hydrating mask at least once a week. Masks can really boost the skin, smoothing away fatigue, stress and blemishes to reveal a gorgeous glow!
